The field is made of artificial turf, has done a great job at making it ADA accessible and also has a large video scoreboard to display to its 6,500 attendees.
What else do you need to Know
Like all stadiums there needs to be some order to the chaos of a high school sporting event.
Here are the stadium procedures:
- If you are a student in 5th grade or youger then you will need your parent to accompany you to the game. No wandering Kindergartners please.
- You can access one time with your ticket. If you leave and come back, guess what? You’ll be forking over the price of a ticket again. That goes for all attendees.
- No loitering will be allowed. All spectators are expected to be seated in the stadium during the duration of any athletic event with the exception of bathroom/concession stand visits. Students will not be allowed to gather in areas around the athletic complex.
- Keep your vices to cheeseburgers. You’ve got it – no alcohol, Strawberry Hill, ziplocs full of alcohol, guns, weapons, vapes or anything that would fall into that category is allowed in the stadium or near the stadium. If you think it might fall into this “no go” category but aren’t sure, just err on the side of caution and leave it home.
- No coolers. And don’t carry in your venti hot chocolate into the stadium either. Whatever you want to consume, you’ll need to purchase from the concession stand.
Drop Off/Pick Up Areas
- The drop off/pick up area is located at the front entrance of Celina High School, located off of Preston Road.
- If you are dropping off a student, you must enter from Preston Road.
- Do not enter from County Road 134 for a drop off or a pick up. This stadium has systems and these systems keep everything flowing. If one of you goes rogue, then s*** hits the fan.
- If you are a season ticket holder or a general admission holders will enter from County Road 134. Keep in mind that the entrance closest to the stadium will be closed.
- All entrances located on County Road 134 will be EXIT ONLY after the 4th quarter.
- If you are driving an oversized vehicles to include RV’s will be required to park in front of the Celina High School auditorium.
- Reserved parking will require a hanging placard that will be visible to lot attendants in order to be admitted into the reserved area. Make sure to hang this as you are approaching the stadium so that they can see it as you are driving up.
If you’d like to Tailgate at the Bobcat stadium . . . good news!
Tailgating is allowed at the new stadium.
- Tailgating is allowed in the grassy areas around the general parking lots located on the west side of the high school campus.
- Do not use the parking spaces for tailgating parking.

- Keep it clean, tailgaters will be responsible for picking up their tailgate area and disposing of all trash prior to the start of the game.

Celina Texas has not spent as much as Allen Independent School District – that would be about $60 million. While McKinney has spent about $63 million and Frisco ISD a whopping $255 million. However, Frisco’s initiative included an entire Dallas Cowboys complex built around the stadium.
